12th Annual Fiesta Grande to celebrate culture, history

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Street closures happening this weekend will be for the 12th Annual Fiesta Grande, on Grande Ave. between Speedway and St. Mary's Rd.

Fiesta Grande celebrates Tucson's west side culture and the history of Barrio Hollywood. 

This year they will start the celebration with a parade of several floats.  There will be bands, carnival rides and even a car show.  For the younger visitors there will be arts and crafts, jumping castles and other carnival games. 

Do not forget about the food - there will be hundreds of vendors that will feature food from the area and great shopping. 

All of the money raised from Fiesta Grande will go back into Barrio Hollywood, for programs like scholarships for high school students, as well as the El Rio Neighborhood Midnight Hoops Tournament and funds to help the elderly in the neighborhood during the summer months.  In 2013 the Fiesta was able to raise more than $4,000.

Fiesta Grande will run from 9 a.m. to dusk on Saturday and Sunday from noon until dusk.
